Great to find a nice restaurant that only has a 1.5 Euro cover charge and no tax. Good choice plus we had a free glass of wine and free bread.

The location of our apartment for our stay in Venice was in Cannaregio. There are many shops and restaurants in this area and getting around is easy. Not far is the train station and drop off point for taxis to and from the airport.

Great little restaurants along the canal, good access to the water taxis and less pricey than the main attractions around St Marks Square

Here you have the original ghetto where Jews had to live a few centuries ago and that was the origin of the word ghetto. This is an area in Venice that is not so jam packed with people (mainly tourists who are elsewhere).

Walk from one section to another over bridges of all shapes and sizes. This section offers plenty of shops and restuarants.

This is the main shopping area near the train station and you can buy souveniors and good food. Muslims can find a few halal food places in this area.

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

Hi. I’ve been in Venice two months ago and also stayed in Cannaregio . The best thing of staying there is that you are 5m on foot from the Fondamenta nove, where you can board in a boat that can take you to the islands. I’ve... More

One more thought. For Christmas eve it may be very advisable to reserve a dinner in a restaurant (and see through internet if it is open). Otherwise it may happen that you will not find any place available. All can be fully... More

Hi Thanks for your question. Venice is not cheap but there are ways to save money. Walk everywhere as it is compact city and you miss a lot by going by boat. Eat in the smaller tucked away restaurants. Use the buses... More
